EFFECTIVE COLLABORATION BETWEEN SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS? “PROBLEMS OCCUR AT INTERFACES”
Dr. Ron Bihovsky – Key Synthesis, LLC
Aaron Sarafinas - Sarafinas Process & Mixing Consulting, LLC
DATE & TIME: Wednesday, April 15, 2020, The Lamb Tavern, Springfield PA
Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30 PM
Clients pay us for more than our technical skills. Often, we must work effectively with people from other technical disciplines in order to deliver what our client needs. For example, chemists and chemical engineers need to work together to advance successful manufacturing processes from the lab to the plant. However, chemists and chemical engineers often have different concerns, think in different ways, speak different “languages,” and have different definitions of “a good process” and project success. Project success is often tied to how well we overcome those differences.
In this meeting we will discuss the barriers we have seen when people from different technical disciplines try to collaborate and share how we can overcome those barriers. This meeting will be highly interactive as we explore how best to increase collaboration, synergy, and communication between scientists and engineers.
Dr. Ron Bihovsky a medicinal and organic chemistry consultant and founder of Key Synthesis LLC, a custom synthesis company specializing in synthesis of biologically active compounds, also performs experimental work and testifies as an expert witness. He was previously a medicinal chemist in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, and conducted research natural product synthesis in academia.
Aaron Sarafinas is a recognized expert in process development and mixing technology. He left Dow/Rohm and Haas after almost 36 years of being the bridge between the R&D lab and production units for many different business areas on a wide variety of processes. He formed Sarafinas Process & Mixing Consulting LLC in June 2018 so clients can achieve faster process development, scaling, and troubleshooting while leveraging advantaged mixing technology.
